What Precident Does Killing Off the 16 Remaing Individuals of a Species Represent?


Instapundit links to  PopSci:

Genetically modified pigs that excrete less waste may be euthanized before they could be slaughtered for human consumption, according to a report out of Canada.


Unless the university finds other funds, it will euthanize the current herd of 16 animals, the Reuters report said, citing Lori Bona Hunt, a spokeswoman for the University of Guelph.

This deliberate extinction of an entire species under the rubric of "euthanizing the herd"  leaves me squirming.

If we create it, are we allowed to break it?
